Don Woodsmith explores light in the art form he developed
Don Woodsmith is hesitant to say he's made something new with his space-inspired reflective light sculptures. But he can't quite think of anything to which to compare the work. Built from found objects in symmetric layers that are somewhere between childhood arcade games and black-lit fantasy worlds, the pieces in Woodsmith's upcoming show, "The New Frontier: Electric Light Sculpture," certainly stand out.
